Corona outbreak in Kaatsheuvel care home: 10 residents and 2 employees infected


Ten residents and two employees were tested positive for the corona virus in two living areas of the Eekhof care center in Kaatsheuvel. The living areas are part of the Schakelring. One resident tested positive at another residential group location. However, more tests are still out.

“According to the guidelines of the RIVM, the residents were immediately nursed in isolation when they received complaints and they acted according to protocol. The employees who tested positive stay in home quarantine,” the organization wrote in a press release.

Due to the situation, it was decided to switch to cohort nursing in the living groups concerned. This means that the entire living group is seen as infected. “This has the ‘advantage’ for the residents who feel a little better again, that they can walk across the cohort ward and do not have to be nursed in isolation. , enter the cohort ward with full protection and remain in the ward until the end of the shift. “

Postpone visit
“We have asked the families to postpone the visit for the time being, unless the visit is necessary for the well-being of the resident. The family is given a mouth / nose mask when they visit and also a halter apron and gloves in the Merel and Bullfinch living groups.

The BD previously wrote that two residents have died in the past few days, but that is not correct, a spokesman said.
